The Lady Cries Murder

February 28 - March 7, 2020 Leigh High School Performing Arts Center

Placed in 1938, the story is a classic detective tale of the period, cram-packed with twists.  See's plot plays on three levels: First, there is radio scripter, Sartone, who has developed a popular detective series; second, there are the actors playing the characters in his scripts; and, finally, there are characters who think they are real.
